3.45 inch Firstview spear / dart point found in Otero County, New Mexico by Brandon Hightower. Sometimes I wonder if Firstview points really weren't just variations of Eden points. This one can go either way, but both authenticators went with Firstview for the type. This point was made one or two thousand years after Shadows on the Trail took place, but it is still pretty old, somewhere between 9,500 to 7,500 years old. John Branney Collection.

1.4 inch long Eden dart point made from an almost translucent white petrified wood and found in Weld County, Colorado. This Eden point has been resharpened down to a nub, much like a modern day pencil would be sharpened down in a pencil sharpener. Eden points were named after the town of Eden, Wyoming by Wormington (Ancient Man in North America 1957) for the points found at the Finley Site. John Branney Collection.

Lovell Constricted projectile points have crude parallel oblique flaking, restricted blade edges, concave bases, and ground stem edges.
